CFIRP 2009 - Clarification Bulletin 6

Clarification of storage in transit fees

Releasing Authority: Director of Compensation and Benefits - Administration- 6 Jul 09

Reference: CFIRP 2009

The following clarification is provided to the CFIRP 2009 Policy article 9.1.04

Background

DMCSS has amended the Household Goods and Removal Services (HGRS) contract with moving companies to eliminate the inclusion of 20 days of SIT from the contract since only approx 10% of moves actually required SIT and the CF was being charged for 20 days of SIT on 100% of moves. DMCSS is now charged separately for each additional service the moving companies provide. This change has raised concerns regarding what CF members are financially responsible for when ILM&M is not a Core benefit.

Clarification

The following para in article 9.1.04 is to be amended as follows:

When SIT exceeds entitlement, the Central Removal Services representative will provide the pro-rated charge to the relocation consultant. The relocation consultant will then calculate the additional SIT charges to be recovered.

Amended to:

When SIT (including Storage In Van (SIV)) exceeds entitlement, the Central Removal Services representative will provide the pro-rated storage charge to the relocation consultant. The relocation consultant will deduct SIT expenses identified by CRS from either Custom or Personalized funds, as applicable. Charges for handling and cartage will not be passed on to CF members.
